MASS INFILTRATION:

With restored US-Cuba ties, a long trip home for Miami Cubans (Ariel Zirulnick, SEPTEMBER 26, 2015, CS Monitor)

The mass outcry from the Cuban-American community that many expected when President Obama announced the normalization of relations in December hasn't really materialized. The shift in thinking can be seen in Moas's own family: While his more hard-line family members haven't been unequivocal in their support of his media appearances, they haven't condemned him either. 

The American flag now flies over the US Embassy in Havana, and the US and Cuba are moving toward an opening of relations for the first time in more than 50 years. Watching the events of the past eight months has been head-spinning for a community organized around a conflict that seemed completely calcified.
